I was going to post something about how senkoskipper probably should have his heresay privaledges taken away considering the only thing defective was the way the measurement was conducted on one review, and that taking it upon himself to inform everyone else here that every panasonic set except the ST30 was "defective" this year warrants a "durrrrrrrpppp" award, but it seems like others have already done that :P .

....Unless the THX mode got worse since 2008 (and I imagine it didnt since I would think part of the point is to keep the settings relatively consistent), I very much disagree with this statement. I need to get an additional set to supplement my 2008 model when they first started using THX and I think it's a great mode, and it looking great out of the box (yeah I tried a few tweaks to make it look a little different, perhaps slightly brighter possibly I think), is one of the reasons I gravitated toward that model, as well as getting a panasonic again. I movie watch and game in that mode and it looks pretty damn good to me, and I look forward to supplementiong it with 3 years of TV improvements to boot.

still a little bright??? But all the complaints were that the THX mode was too dim (although I remember hearing this from 2008 as well, people just needed to get used to the comparative difference between that and a vivid mode I felt).
